    Answer:  35%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Then, the percent of the begonias did the dog eat is given by :_

    \text{Percent of the begonias dog ate}=\dfrac{\text{Number of begonias dog ate}}{\text{Total begonias planted}}\times100\\\\=\dfrac{7}{20}\times100\\\\\Righatrrow\ \text{Percent of the begonias dog ate}=7\times5=35\%

    Therefore , the percent of the begonias the doge ate = 35%

    100 / 20 = 5
    5 * 7 = 35
